    I transfer files to mates at the same time located far from one another. Any suggestion for long distance file transfers like this? The files are quite large and some complain when they download the file. So a faster solution would be awesome!

    Use cloud hosting like DropBox or OneDrive.

    if you share the same local network such as in a office complex, you can use shared folders
    If not in the same network but physically far away, an online storage service should do - but you don't want to use up data in downloading
    Flash drives or external storage drives is another option -but that doesn't become viable if the travelling distance is too large

    Yes, these are the kinds of services we use and upload / downloading files is extremely slow for large files. So we're looking for some other options.

    Yes, we're all physically far away so different networks and mailing hard drives, etc seems unlikely. Just looking for some simple file transfer options that will also provide high speed file transfers. I don't want to have to wait hours to download file anymore

    file transfers over long distances are almost always via internet - so your isp speed determines how fast you can download and upload files. If you're using onedrive, it usually uses the maximum speed that your isp can give.

    Cloud storage and sharing such as Box, Dropbox, Onedrive, are great because they're mostly free but they suffer from all the users sharing files on the servers. In order to avoid one user's file's slowing down everyone else, these services will limit you and you'll notice it quickly if you start moving around large files, which is what you appear to be doing.

    If you're looking for free options, I'd take a look at WebRTC which would provide you with secure transfers and faster speeds that won't be limited in the way like the previously mentioned free services.

    Also, if you have money to spend and need something more professional or software that can be written off as business expense you could try Ipswitch or Innorix large file transfer solutions. The software they provide would do what you need and then some.

    Skype it's actually pretty good for live file transferring. It won't fuss about transferring muti-gigabyte files.

    I didn't know that it could do that. How does it behave when downloading or uploading files and the internet connection gets interrupted? Does it resume from where it was or start all over again?
